the san francisco unified's actual budget has slung by 20 percent. it's gone from $500 million dollars to $400 million dollars. well, the city has run a budget deficit, its actual budget dollars have increased in the same time frame. its expenses have gone up faster than its revenues have, but at san francisco unified the actual dollars have gone down while expenses and pension obligations continue to rise. so i think it's an incredible thing that the voters of san francisco have 100 percent of the time supported local funding for our public schools and for our children and that the only place that there ever seems to be a debate as to whether there's an appropriate use of local funds, of the city funds for public schools is inside this chamber. the voters have already spoken and that 100 percent of the time we support these local funds. and so i think that that's a really important distinction that is not spoken about enough, is that the two different budgets. from a very high level point of view talking about prop h and the children's fund, i think the voters will once again 100 p

cooking and we did a teacher training workshop where san francisco unified public school teachers came and learned to use cooking for the core standards. we range all over the place. we really want everyone to feel like they can be included in the conversation. a lot of organizations i think which say we're going to teach cooking or we're going to teach gardening, or we're going to get in the policy side of the food from conversation. we say all of that is connected and we want to provide a place that feels really community oriented where you can be interested in multiple of those things or one of those things and have an entree point to meet people. we want to build community and we're using food as a means to that end. >> we have a wonderful organization to be involved with obviously coming from buy right where really everyone is treated very much like family. coming into 18 reasons which even more community focused is such a treat. we have these events in the evening and we really try and bring people together. people come in in groups, meet friends that they didn't even know they h

't take that one report seriously that will be the timing is bad will happen. >> san francisco unified school district said it too has had unspecified threats and in antioch, deer valley high school claims there was a bomb on campus. >>> two accused of a bomb in canada are planning to derail a train traveling from tore ron -- toronto to iran. they say al qaeda has had a presence since 1981 and they are operating within their borders. >> the individuals are receiving support from al qaeda elements located in iran. >> authorities do not say there seems to be a link between them and the boston marathon bomb -- bombings. >>> they are now allowing small knives on passenger flights. they want some feedback and others say it makes travel more confusing when the rules keep changing. >> i don't know, a knife is a knife regardless of how small it is. >> they are not saying if it is temporary or if or not. >>> the furloughs started as part of the suck quest terribled -- sequestered budget cuts. they had up to three hours of delays in los angeles. they have to take everyone unpaid day every week.
in san francisco unified we say we have a zero tolerance for bullying or any kind of activity like bullying i want to decouple zero tolerance from the notion of having punitive measures because we don't believe in that. we mean that every classroom, every school environment should be a safe environment where everyone is welcomed regardless of who you are, regardless of your ethnic background, sexual orientation or cultural background and we don't couple that with behaviors that kids will display. and the other thing in terms of context that i want to make sure is clear and i didn't am happy you're here and we are fighting a battle against pop culture and the messages they receive on tv, logging on to the facebook page, logging on to all of the social media that is out there, think how many times in pop culture they refer to someone as "their little b, or little n" and that's just the way we greet each other and for someone that entered school only speaking spanish and you think about the language issues and in spanish i can tell you a whole bunch of terms that people use to grea
get these wrong, but over the last 10 years the san francisco unified's actual budget has slung by 20 percent. it's gone from $500 million dollars to $400 million dollars. well, the city has run a budget deficit, its actual budget dollars have increased in the same time frame. its expenses have gone up faster than its revenues have, but at san francisco unified the actual dollars have gone down while expenses and pension obligations continue to rise. so i think it's an incredible thing that the voters of san francisco have 100 percent of the time supported local funding for our public schools
external agencies, but we know that the city college as well as the san francisco unified school district has debt portfolio and would fall under this category and would not be impacted. on the variable side of the house, the department is issuing variable rate indebtedness index to libor may have been impacted. in terms of the airport, if it is backed by -- or index to libor they could have exposure and kevin cohen will speak specifically to the airport's portfolio as relates to that. in terms of the city we have variable rate debt in our portfolio that is not -- is unhedged and it doesn't have a swap. it is approximately $129 million or 5% of the city's 2.9 billion in debt outstanding. and so for purposes of this illustration we haven't included commercial paper program, even though they're considered variable but we don't feel they're impacted and would make this slide more

over on pave street for a number of years now has been a blight on the neighborhood. the san francisco unified school district has granted the ownership of the building to french american international school and we believe this is an opportunity for french american international school to move forward with the community and continue to grow in san francisco. part of what we discuss on numerous occasions with french american international school is this blossoming partnership. this is part of their mou, their memorandum of understanding, which is calling for community use of the facility and access and affordability and traffic and calming measures in the neighborhood. first and foremost of importance to supervisor breed as community use for the facility. we hope to see this as a model based on the urban school close to this location. this will -- they have been a great success and a model and i know that the administrative staff over at french american has been speaking and working with the urban school to implement some of their same models so we really see this as a great boone
